Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Poised. Very smooth drive, quiet engine and responsive. Gear stick moves like a well oiled bolt, clutch is light as a feather, as is the steering.

What's it like to park?
Fantastic. It has a small turning circle and the parking sensors are very handy. You can squeeze it into the tiniest of spaces....think rat through narrow pipe.
